    Taking Shots At Tar Heels Offense

    February 20, 2014 at 1:16 pm

    Seven straight wins, including several of the double-digit variety, with a few come-from-behind victories sprinkled in and all seems well again in Tar Heel country, right? Well, not quite. As UNC coach Roy Williams will tell you, there’s ALWAYS room for improvement, and that’s true for this squad as well. Despite a now impressive 18-7, […]

    Brice Is Simmering For Tar Heels

    February 12, 2014 at 10:02 am

    With a talented and deep pool of players emerging for the Tar Heels, reserves in particular must make the most of their minutes to consistently take the floor. Sophomore forward Brice Johnson has done just that, scoring 10 points with four rebounds (three offensive), three steals and two blocks in Sunday’s 73-62 win over Notre […]

    Passion, pride and patience … plenty of patience. That’s what it takes to be among “The Risers,” the student cheering section at UNC basketball games at the Smith Center. Just ask UNC students and friends Jane Zorowitz and Marta Case. The pair waited about four hours, mostly in biting cold temperatures on a recent Sunday […]

    Meeks Makes The Most Of His Minutes

    January 22, 2014 at 1:14 pm

    Looking for a bright spot when it comes to the Tar Heels poor play of late? Well, there is one (and a big one literally and figuratively, at that) in 6’9″ freshman forward Kennedy Meeks.

    Will We See The Old McDonald?

    January 15, 2014 at 9:58 am

    It’s difficult not to notice that as Leslie McDonald has gone of late, so have the Tar Heels. McDonald, who returned to the lineup on Dec. 18 vs. Texas after missing the first nine games of the regular season for receiving impermissible benefits, had a solid game vs. the Longhorns with 15 points. Like his […]

    James’ Return Should Bolster Heels On Both Ends Of Court

    January 8, 2014 at 11:05 am

    Setbacks like Sunday’s loss at Wake Forest are surely frustrating for the Tar Heels, but for the most part you can’t blame their defense. UNC has been mostly stellar on that end of the court, holding opponents to just 38.5 percent shooting. That was not the case vs. the Deacs, who knocked down 48.1 percent […]
